Papa’s upcycled hat and neck warmer…as modelled by Mama.
Papa doesn’t wear hats. Not really. But I’ve always felt that maybe it was because he didn’t have the right hat. So with the sweater parts leftover after making C another pair of longies this past fall I set about making a hat. I used one of mine to draw up a pattern and then one morning before taking the little Maus to school, we cut out and sewed up Papa’s hat.
And he wore it!
So, buoyed by the success of the hat, I used more of the sweater to fashion a matching neck warmer lined with grey cashmere that he then received for Christmas. But Papa doesn’t actually want to appear on this blog of mine…he would rather be behind the camera as he so often is. Which is okay, as I think I enjoy wearing the hat and neck warmer as much as he does.
